Raewyne Bary (EdD)

Raewyne has an ENORMOUS amount of experience and knowledge in ECE, Primary Caregiving and RIE philosophy. Not only that, but Raewyne has completed a PhD, and her research focus was on the impact of organisational culture on the ability of teachers to form attachment type relationships.
It was through this mahi that Raewyne deepened her understanding of how rosters can and do impact on relationship development. Raewyne was also part of the team at Massey University Childcare Center who was a leader in the field at implementing primary care giving, and who has shown us all that we can in fact work without rosters in an infant toddler space, and that this is best practice for this age group. She has also been part of a three year Center of Innovation research project which explored leadership impacts on outcomes for infants and toddlers. This was further connected to the center's community of practice philosophy where the team worked without rosters, in a primary care system.
